Yoga & Wellness Show: September 30 to October 2, 2016

Fitness, Nutrition, Yoga, Healthy Living. Namaste.

This weekend, yoga and wellness enthusiasts from across the Greater Toronto Area will gather to learn, teach, shop, discuss and enjoy all things associated with a healthy lifestyle at the Yoga & Wellness Show. The Yoga & Wellness Show will have something for everyone and is geared towards being inclusive for beginners to novice yogis, and everyone in between. If you're looking to find more balance and to start this season off on a healthy foot, then this show is for you! I've teamed up with the the Yoga & Wellness Show to bring you a fantastic giveaway in celebration of this event - so keep reading to learn to how to win!

I have personally been practicing yoga on a regular basis for over 10 years and I truly believe in the benefits of yoga. I've practiced a variety of styles in studios across Ontario, during a semester abroad in Italy, and even right in my own home. The beauty of yoga is that it is something that anyone can participate in. It spans generations, as you cannot be to old or too young to start. There is no requisite fitness level and contrary to popular belief, you do not need to be flexible. Yoga is about breath and being present. At the most basic level, all you need to do is show up to your mat and breathe - it is really that simple!
